Union Action in Mangere
Today a few hundred workers went on strike at the mangere distribution center for progressive enterprises and around the counry. Its just down the road from me and is going for the next 2 days so i will keep updating as the weekend goes on.

The workers are striking for a 5% pay rise and as this is the major distribution center progressives will not be able to restock their supermarkets all weekend. This is the first strike action in 7 years at the favona distribution center and the workers all seemed up beat and enthusiastic.
